Together with a friend we had dinner here on Saturday evening. They advised the monthly menu, which was a good advise. Entree, main and dessert were lovely presented and very tasteful. Staff friendly and helpful, all in all a good choice.

Restaurant hotel Merlet is a very nice 1 star restaurant in Schoorl. The ambiance is very nice and the lights perfectly dimmed. The atmosphere is just perfect and the staff is very nice and professional. The wine list is good and the pricing is reasonable for a 1 star restaurant. The food is as expected very good but never overdone.... More

They took excellent care of special wishes regarding the menu and wines taken form our home cellar on the occasion. Food was very good, beautifully arranged and tasty. Our guests stayed here overnight and they enjoyed it too at... More

Tonight we had a diner for 3 in Metlet and it did not disappoint. Our Son and me had the Menu Alliance, my wife the 4 course menu, and all courses were great. Ingredients were all fresh and the composition and taste were excellent. We had a bottle of Puligny Montrachet and paid Euro 365 for the dinner. The staff... More

Service was impeccable, and the food lovely. We had the 6 course tasting menu with matching wines. Truly a great value for money (80€ for the food alone). The cheese course is not to be missed! The sommelier was outstanding. He offered several more challenging wines at the beginning, but all paired perfectly with each course. Was it all worthy... More

Always a great experience (food, service and ambience) at Merlet. Food is elegant, yet straightforward. The sommelier does a great job in selection of excellent wines to combine. Highly recommend.
